Up until last year, people were able to enjoy YouTube and make money off of the content without having to tone it down. However, there has recently been some issues that have caused advertisers to rethink their involvement with the video sharing platform. This has also carried over to other social media platforms where people submit content freely. This has resulted in YouTube taking precautions with content that is offensive. They have already removed ads from the channels of a few users. This has shown other YouTube users that they are serious about this new plan.
Other social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter are soon to follow with this change of heart. Therefore, people are going to have to put more thought in what they release so that they will not be offensive. While some people may find this to be alarming, there are a few things that have been determined to be offensive. Therefore, users do not have to worry about being banned because they said something that has been taken the wrong way, or they have typed something that the device has auto-corrected into something else.
The climate of social and online media is changing. It is becoming more important for people to use their creativity in order to provide content. They also have to watch what they say and make sure that their beliefs are considered ethical.
